Selezione Greco, Guardiense 2015, Campania, Italy
La Guardiense is a co-operative near Benevento in Campania. In 2006, they revolutionised their winemaking and cellarage with the arrival of celebrated oenologist Riccardo Cottarella and are now producing some of the best white wines in the region. They are clearly one to watch in the next few years!
Guardiene’s Greco is a stunning example of why Southern Italy is slowly making a name for itself among the world’s great whites. It’s everything you want from a Mediterranean white: wonderful expressive aromas with floral and white fruit notes. On the palate, good roundness but also brilliant freshness.. How could you say no to a glass of this on a hot summer day?
